Fred W. McDarrah: Artists and Writers of the 60s and 70s
Fred W. McDarrah: Artists and Writers of the 60s and 70s at Steven Kasher Gallery in New York, NY. "...Fred W. McDarrah was the primary photographer and picture editor at The Village Voice during that newspaper’s first thirty years (and he is still with The Voice as consulting Picture Editor). McDarrah was the eyes of The Voice. His pictures were the graphic expression of the United States’ first, largest and most spirited alternative weekly as it recorded - and helped create - the most vibrant decades of the greatest city in the world. Besides his work for The Voice, McDarrah also photographed for his own book projects, starting with The Beat Scene, 1960, and The Artist’s World in Pictures, 1961, followed by more than a dozen other profusely illustrated books. His in-depth knowledge and passion for New York’s overlapping art, writing, music, and theater scenes are the foundations of this exhibition."
